In 2012, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported a whopping 21,000 male breast reduction procedures performed, with an increase of 5% over 2011 figures [1]


How to get a chiseled chest

Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate excess skin, fat and/or glandular tissue in the chest. It can also reduce puffiness of the nipples and areolae.
Tens of thousands of men across North America experience an undesirable overgrowth in their breast tissue.

This medical condition, known as gynecomastia, often occurs in adolescence or later, attributed to such factors as genetics, hormonal imbalance, weight gain, and as a side effect of certain medications. Its prevalence does not make it any easier to bear for most men. You may feel that your abnormally enlarged breasts are emasculating and, as a result, are causing you embarrassment that makes you feel unhappy and ashamed about your appearance.

You probably have experienced discomfort in revealing your upper body, and avoid situations that would have been enjoyable if you didn’t have gynecomastia. However, the reality of the matter is that you do not have to live with this condition. Your desire for a flatter, more masculine chest is achievable through male breast reduction surgery.

Gynecomastia

  • Male Breast Reduction Surgery Toronto

Gynecomastia is the medical term used to describe enlarged male breasts, a condition that affects some 40% to 60% of men[2]. The medical community has had a difficult time identifying any specific underlying causes (or accompanying medical issues). Some studies do demonstrate an increased incidence of gynecomastia in obese patients or those who regularly use certain drugs (anabolic steroids, spironolactone, Tagamet, marijuana and alcohol), but many sufferers may present the condition without the existence of these factors. Many sufferers experience diminished self-confidence and feel socially inhibited. The goal of male breast reduction treatment is to remove excess fat and glandular tissue (or, depending on severity, extra skin as well) from the enlarged breasts.


Exercise has been found to be inadequate in addressing abnormally large male breasts

There is no doubt that even heavily regimented exercise and a healthy diet are insufficient in eliminating abnormally enlarged breasts–something that you most likely have already noticed, as did Dwayne Johnson (more popularly known as The Rock), the former wrestler-turned-actor who had male breast reduction performed in 2005.
